Cultivated Candle Co. headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. Midwest candles!

Okay guys, we heard ya. After many requests for this CCC candle to make a comeback, the Minted Lavender Candle is here! The most popular scent in our early 2020 Hygge Collection just happens to be the perfect candle as we embrace all of spring's goodness. 

In Cultivated Candle Co. fashion, we just have to have a twist on your traditional lavender aroma. The Minted Lavender Candle blends earthy lavender flowers with fresh peppermint and spearmint sprigs. It’s a lavender candle for all - Whether you're a lavender lover or loather. This clean yet floral aroma instantly makes a home feel more cozy, fresh and clean. It provides that kind of coziness that is unique to spring and summer. Ya dig? 

In honor of it’s launch, we’re sharing some fun information provided by Nicollete Perry, PhD for Healthline. Lavender is traditionally a Mediterranean herb, but it’s now widespread across the world. The historical use for this herb is neverending. One of the most notable historical uses is for love. It’s said that Cleopatra used lavender to seduce Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. You go, girl.

Lavender has also been used to protect against “evil spirits” and was hung above doorways. “We know now it’s a strong antimicrobial that may help prevent certain diseases, but back then the idea was that lavender protected against evil fits.” (Source: Healthline). 

It is also said that Queen Elizabeth I of England would have fresh lavender in her space every single day. Total royalty vibes! 

One of the most well known historical uses that is still practiced today is lavender’s ability to help us all chill. Studies have shown lavender, the herb itself, can help calm and lift moods, enhance sleep, relieve pain and more. 

While all natural soy candles aren’t the same as the herbs themselves, there’s nothing like lighting a lavender candle to boost your mood and help you relax. 

The Minted Lavender Candle is perfect for cozy days, hosting guests and creating a clean, springlike feeling in your home. This CCC scent is shoppable in signature candles (with an adorable new mason jar look!), wax melts, Candle Refills, Fill Your Own Candles, and will be available for vintage candle scent selection starting with the April Antique Candle Upload this Sunday 4/11 at 8 p.m. ET.
